Product Description

Details

Our AICS-pattern metal magazines are manufactured from high strength steel, nitrided, and finished inside and outside with Cerakote for ultimate durability, corrosion resistance, and friction reduction.

5-Round Magazines:

  • 3.055” Outside Length
  • 2.870” max cartridge overall length (COAL)
  • 2.52” Rear Height

10-Round Magazines:

  • 3.055” Outside Length
  • 2.870” max cartridge overall length (COAL) with binder plate
  • 2.960” max cartridge overall length (COAL) without binder plate (see limitations below)
  • 3.90” Rear Height

12-Round Magazines:

  • 3.055” Outside Length
  • 2.870” max cartridge overall length (COAL) with binder plate
  • 2.960” max cartridge overall length (COAL) without binder plate (see limitations below)
  • 4.61” Rear Height

The 10-round magazines are approximately ¾” shorter in height than standard AICS 10-round magazines due to MDT’s unique Double Stack to Single Feed (DSSF) transition design, allowing easier mag changes when shooting prone.

The 10-round magazine includes 2 internal ribs that help reduce friction between the cartridge and magazine body and provide a smooth transition from a double stack to single feed at the top of the magazine.

Binder Plate Details:

  • The magazines with front binder plates are compatible with all rifles equipped with AICS-pattern bottom metal or chassis systems.  The binder plate holds the cartridges back from the front of the magazines and guides them past the bottom of the feed ramp.  The maximum cartridge overall length (COAL) that will fit in this magazine is 2.870”.
  • The magazines without front binder plates allow a maximum cartridge overall length of 2.960”.  These are compatible with all AICS-pattern bottom metal and chassis systems, but most common actions such as Remington 700 and Savage 10/11 will require modifications to the receiver (i.e. notching out the bottom of the feed ramp) to prevent the bullet tips from catching on the bottom of the feed ramp (see photo below).  DO NOT order these magazines without a full understanding of this.
